What Did the US Do in Afghanistan?

GWB's boyzzz left a stinker. 2004 those of us who prize freedom of religion had reason to be concerned. We were hoping that since America had overthrown the Taliban and was helping to draft the new Afghani constitution that it would be similar to the constitution of Turkey—or at least be distinguishable from the constitution of Iran. What was created, with the help of the U.S. government, was an Islamic Republic, a state in which “no law can be contrary to the sacred religion of Islam.”

So, with all the propaganda and proselytizing about "helping democracy" from Rice, Rummy, et. al., what our adventure created was another Taliban.

Nice work.
